“As a survivor of domestic violence, I understand firsthand the economic impact that domestic violence has on women. I had to literally rebuild my life by building a house with my own hands. If communities get involved, we can reduce the 5.8 billion in direct domestic violence costs per year, and quickly turn victims into contributing community members.
